El Chaparral recently held the traditional Captains’ Day where Nick Cripps and Jane Wagner celebrated their year with the full support of all the members and visitors with a total 80players.

The captain’s had done and amazing job in organising competitors from near and far, including many club captains on the Costa, visitors from UK and all members – them preparing team sheets, buggy list, scorecards, prize lists as well as snack packs for the buggies and a great set up of prizes which were displayed on the terrace for the winners of the day.

With magnificent weather although with a little fresh breeze, all participants went out at 09.00 on a shot gun start, the format of play was a team event and stableford.

This year nearly everybody went home with a prize, best individual score, 1st, 2nd 3rd Men and Ladies, best team 1st, 2nd 3rd; as well as nearest the pin in all par 3’s, which were sponsored by best restaurants in Mijas, plus straightest drive on hole 13 and best dressed of the day.

The course was in excellent conditions and very good scores showed at the end of the day, with winners decided by one point after a very tight finish.


Once the competition ended, the participants enjoyed a wonderful mealand fellowship awards on the terrace of the restaurant, where Captain’sNick and Jane were the ringmasters.

Such was the great atmosphere of warmth and relaxation, that some of those present took the opportunity to demonstrate their status as tenors, singing “acapella” after the stellar actuations of David Lee and Nick Cripps.

We must thank all our sponsors for their support to the event one more year.

Tikus Gastro Bar, El Gusto, La Farola, Barboru, streets of London, Las casitas, Srixon & Gleveland, Groos Dentistas, cabopino golf, El Paraiso, etc.
